Imagine having infield information about all the important parameters effecting crop growth – from temperature, relative humidity, to rainfall, available anywhere, at any time. For 35 years Pessl Instruments has been providing farmers, decision makers and consultants with the best in class tools for informed decision-making.
A complete range of wireless, solar powered monitoring systems under the METOS® brand, and an online and mobile platform FieldClimate are applicable in all meteorological/climate zones and can be used in various industries and for various purposes – from agriculture to research, hydrology, meteorology, flood warning and more.
The concept behind the METOS decision support solution system is to enable users to have long-term accessibility and storage of all the data that iMETOS devices measure in the field – i.e. weather station, soil probe, crop camera, insect trap and object trackers. The devices transmit data in near real-time, allowing the farmer to access critical data, as well as take advantage of various decision support solutions. With these solutions, any farm can turn into a digital or smart farm.
Main decision support solutions include:
For Ag in Motion™, METOS has prepared a full digital farm showcase of their main products in the Field of Excellence. Farmers will be able to see the full iMETOS IMT Weather station, sensors for soil moisture, iMETOS iSCOUT for insect monitoring, iMETOS CropVIEW field camera and this year’s innovation, LoRa WAN based weather station, iMETOS LoRain – measuring rain, temperature, relative humidity combined with site specific disease and weather forecasting.
